The Zamfara State House of Assembly has begun fresh moves to impeach the state’s deputy governor, Mahdi Aliyu.
The deputy speaker of the House, Musa Bawa, at Friday’s plenary submitted a document requesting the impeachment of the deputy governor.
Mr Bawa, who is also the Chairman, House Committee on Public Account, moved a motion for the consideration of the request.
He said: “I stand here before our able leader, Nasiru Mu’azu Magarya, to submit this document for the impeachment of the Deputy Governor, Zamfara State.”
The speaker, Mr Magarya, acknowledged receipt of the document.
We will treat the document in accordance with the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999 (as amended),” the speaker said.
The deputy governor parted ways with Governor Bello Matatwalle after he refused to join the defecting governor and other elected officials in Zamfara to the All Progressives Congress (APC) last year.
